The 90's Throwback

12 Aug 2019

Ahhh the days of my youth….it’s not all whiny grunge and heavy eyeliner though. The 90’s had practical comfort at the heart of its key trends. Check out the blog for 5 easy ways to add a 90's touch to your winter 2019 wardrobe.

5 Ways to Add a Touch of 90s Fashion to Your 2019 Wardrobe

90s Fashion Essentials: Graphic Tees

Forget boring plain t-shirts, graphic tees are an easy way to pay homage to the hero of your self-made cassette mix or your favourite TV series - and  add an edge to your casual everyday outfits.

Create a cool & chic look by teaming your tee with a plaid jacket (because pattern clash is so hot right now, oh and so is plaid) or make it fun and flirty with a pleated skirt, sneakers and a denim jacket. Which brings us to our next 2 points…

90s Fashion Essentials: Denim EVERYTHING

90’s fashion loved denim. The most versatile piece for your 2019 winter-going-into-spring wardrobe has got to be the boyfriend denim jacket. A more relaxed fit, roll the roomy sleeves or drape the jacket around your shoulders for an effortless touch of cool.

Who in their right mind is opposed to a good sneaker? No one. Forget traditional running shoes, we are talking flatforms and leather or patent lace up sneakers that make a statement and can look super cool with a fitted trouser suit or teamed with a midi skirt and knit. The perfect blend of feminine practicality.
